In brief: Kidney disease
This is a type of kidney disease found in rural areas along tributaries of the danube river in the balkan countries of bosnia, bulgaria, croatia, romania, and serbia.
Although the exact cause is still being investigated, it is now though that it is related to consumption of certain herbs containing aristolochic acid.
